    i just installed my fisher plow harness on my 2001 ford f250. got the kit from donovan truck equipment in nh. they screwed up and forgot to give me an adapter. drove back got the adapter, and continued only to find that the headlight harness is not the correct style for my vehicle!! its says 9007 which i have, but it also says 9004. does fisher make an adapter that will fit into the fisher side, then go to my truck harness. without it the lights will not work. what should i do? go back to donovan and have them look at it? any input is appreciated. if they screwed up then it should be their responsibilty to fix it.

    What is the plow you are installing?

    Fisher has changed their harnesses so that they are on "fit all" type connector. Go back and look at the connector and you should be able to rotate it 90degree from how you are currently trying to install it and the plug should go right in. The plug should fit two types of headlight plugs just depends on how the orientation of the plug is.

    It's a little tricky if you haven't been told this or don't realize it.

    By rotate i don't meat that the plug physically rotates about itself....If you twist the end of it one way or the other it will line up or one type of plug or the other.

    Can you take a picture of the plug and post it? What plow/harness it this for?

    That doesn't exactly explain what I am trying to convey, unfortunately Fisher doesn't touch on the multiple plug that they use on their harnesses in their directions.

    Right...Now if andyman would just say what his plow it than it would give a hint if he had the multi plug or not. I think they started putting them on the harnesses 2-3 years ago.

    If this is a 4 port harness you will need to insert the wires depending on the headlamp type. If this is a 3 port the harness is preconfigured for HB-5 and you need to swap a couple of wires on the blue connector, and make sure the Appropriate side of the reversible connector is plugged in. This is covered in the install instructions. Both harnesses will work on a HB1 or HB5.
